is almost here!!



I was counting down days, because the book fair is almost here, and yup! i already got a workshop... i'm so thrilled about what to expect but also that for sure it will be tons of hard work!
For a hard day, i'll be working with 300 kids at day, but is hard to say if it will be like that all the book fair... and because i'll be using my voice all the time, i already got a nice parcel of medicine, herbs, teas and everything that would help to not loose my voice or be talking like Vito Corleone... and it that parcel i may probably put some shots of vitamins
I'm taking my job seriously, i want to avoid any type of flu, cold or whatever that can put me on bed with high fever because, of course, after working with lots of kids is something sure... they can also infected me, and i don't have high defenses as them...
So, i'm gonna chill, do my best as always and just have fun on this...
I'll be counting down the days..

proud teacher...


I've been working with small group of girl, they had like 11 years old and is been a fun classes... the first classes was just the hard part because of course, they want to start with the paint but, well they need to know the basic on drawings which is the "boring part" all of them want to use paint and colors, because well, colors are just fun...
I can't say how long i've been working with them but for sure like 8 months... Now they are using acrylic paint, sometimes they also paint their faces (i guess is part of their fun..) but after all they been doing great work...

Theatre production...





I used to work some years ago with a dancer, she was a contemporary dancer... i must to say that i've must to update myself for that job, like read tons of articles and books because i have no idea, besides i was so sure that my boss will be so pleased of it, besides of that, was also because i want to understand and learn more about dance (i'm not quite a good dancer, the "just dance" game in wii could be totally perfect for me...) and being in a theatre, preparing the stage and lights, knowing all the workers there was just an experience... that was like 8 years ago, maybe not just a few years :)
Recently i received a call of one of my besties, according to my boyfriend and other people, he is the youngest and the best composer in town, he could be one of the best composers in México, he work on theatre companies, also he is a great teacher... well he called me one day at night, his company was on a big trouble because their technical creative was kinda a mess, he left all the puppet and the rest of the production in progress when the opening of their play will be just in 5 days.... and here is where i stared, i'll continued the rest of the production, finishing the paper puppets and the rest of the stage, i thought i could finish like in 3 days but seriously? just a few hours of the premiere i was still painting...
This are a few shots of it, i would love to take more pics but well, if i tell you that i worked 56 hours will you believe me? because it was like that... from 8 or 9am to 1 am it was hell but it was fun!

a few words...


This past days had been a totally different from what i've been living... Emotionally i've been in up and down, is just temporary, i told myself constantly... like i want to sleep all day long and so ironic i kinda struggle to fall sleep, although! i already finished 3 paintings that i stared working since 3 years ago! (big woW to me! considering that i get bored and i barely finish a painting after i stared...) and seriously i want to keep working on my paintings but ideas are just flying away! so frustrated!!!
I'm too shy to ask to another friends or artist if they've been going thru this...  (good thing, i haven't lost my sense of humor tho..)
Is just temporary, just temporary... i'll keep working on my unfinished paintings...

take a look on it...



It's September, nice weather, tons of celebrations and things to do (like working on my paintings, i should show you some advances...) I've been very active on Etsy lately, sewing, doing some progress on zipper sewing (i'm totally proud of it!! i encourage myself to do it!) but well, going back to Etsy, yessss i like a lot of items on Etsy, like shoes, clothes, vintage clothes!!! housewares, sewing supplies... but this is a quick roundup of what i like and why i include them often on my treasuries list...
Take a look!
A yard of light orange ruffle (isn't gorgeous?)
Summer vegan bracelet, totally boho and trendy!
Rustic coat rack! i can totally see this in my apt
Instant download gingerbread recipe! yummm!
Now sing with me: this are a few of my favorite things!!

naturalista...


This post may look like sponsored but not, the reason that i want to write it is because i'm pretty happy with it... Since a year and a half i've been washing my hair with just baking soda y apple cider vinegar, it was a radical change because, well, who doesn't love the nice scent of shampoo right? well, i like it too, but i like my hair looks healthy and i couldn't find it in any shampoo, plus! with this method my hair grows incredibly fast and is thicker... Not really into it? well, is eco-friendly :)
Before to try it i read a lot of blogs talking about no-poo method, all of them tells the big benefits of this, just a few persons talk about how this ruin their hair (coincidence or not but the persons who try it was just women), and yes, i was a little bit frustrated the first 2 weeks because my hair was so frisky but well, but like everything, it takes time...
And yes, this is not a sponsored post but a conscious one..

a thought lately...



Es Agosto, es de mis meses favoritos, llueve mucho, es fresco, no hace tanto calor y hay días nublados que me encantan!! :) además de eso, hay mas cosas que me gustan de este mes y otras que he hecho últimamente, unas a razón de que debo hacerlas por diferentes causas, pero debo decir que encontré inspiración para ello! tal vez parezca un tanto infantil y naif pero, es por cuestiones de trabajo. Por esa misma razón estoy leyendo un libro encantador y maravilloso, se llama Pippi Calzaslargas, el personaje me ha parecido de lo más simpático! que bueno que no he visto la película y no recuerdo gran cosa de la caricatura pero ese personaje me animó a hacer cosas que tal vez no haría del todo. Aunque no lo parezca soy algo tímida (e insegura, es parte de supongo..), no hablaré mas de ello...
Así que decidí finalmente armarme de valor y subí a mi tienda en etsy un par de bolsas que tengo haciendo desde hace un año.. 

Después de todo, los libros infantiles son para todas las edades no?

Is August, is one of my favorites months, it rains a lot, is fresh, is not so warm and you can wake up and see a cloudy sky that i totally love!! :D besides of that, there's more things i do really like of this months and things that i've done lately, some of them i made it for the different reasons, but i must to say that i fond inspiration for it! and it may be looks a little bit childish and naif but, is just for work matters. For that reason i've been reading a charming and lovely book, is Pippi Longstockin, and the character is so charm! i haven't seen the movie and i can't barely remember about the cartoon but this fictional character encourage me to do things that i'll probably won't do.. Even when it doesn't look like, i'm a very shy person (and insecure, i guess..), but i'm not gonna talk about that...
So finally i encourage myself and upload some tote bags at my etsy shop that i've been doing since last year...
And after all, child books aren't just for child but for grown ups isn't?
